The AGM is where the election of the upcoming (or in this case current) season’s Executive members takes place.  We’ve heard from some of you expressing your concerns and comments regarding the process for which the current Executive has provided a season for your child to play in, and we encourage you to take this opportunity to step up and volunteer your time going forward to be able to address some of the concerns you have brought forward to us and bring your ideas to the table.

All candidates for election to the Executive office must be nominated (using the attached nomination form) and submitted to the LMHA Secretary, Melanie Redmond via email no later than Monday, October 19th at 0900hrs.  (Melanie.redmond@kingstonhsc.ca).
